Madagascar (**1/2)

Fine family entertainment. The number of pop culture references are thankfully kept to a minimum, and when they are used, they're pretty funny. The animation is stylistically rendered and like most computer animated films, it's a joy to look at. The script is pretty slight, however, and the movie takes about half of its running time to truly get rolling. The celebrity cast does fine vocal work, but it's Da Ali G Show's Sacha Baron Cohen who steals the show. Dreamworks animation is no Pixar, and I don't think this one will appeal beyond the family crowd like Shrek or Finding Nemo did.
